    Re: Bears sign Orton to 1 year extension

    Bears are sure making some solid moves this offseason...

    Re: Bears sign Orton to 1 year extension

    Resigning Grossman and extending Orton - while Briggs and Berrian are going to test (and do quite well) free agency.

    Yeah, that pretty much sounds exactly like the Bears.

    Re: Bears sign Orton to 1 year extension

    At least they will have 3 solid backups that can step up and play if need to. Now they just need that starter and they will be set.


    Step 1: Cut a hole in the box.

    Re: Bears sign Orton to 1 year extension

    I kind of think Orton should have moved on to be a #2 somewhere... Instead of a #3 with CHI.

    He's not the #3 in Chicago now. I'm guessing he will go into training camp as the #1 and the battle will be between him and Rex for the starting job.

    I wonder how much they paid him for the extension. He is only making around $460,000 now.

    Being #3 gives him more time to concentrate on his fun time:

    Re: Bears sign Orton to 1 year extension

    Wonderful, 2 of our 3 awful quarterbacks are back under contract for next season. I was getting worried someone else would swoop in and snatch Rex or Kyle away from us...

    Re: Bears sign Orton to 1 year extension

    I think the Bears and the Vikings are going to fight for last place in the North this coming fall. It will all depend on who makes the best (or worst depending on how you look at it) moves this off-season.

    If the Bears loose out on their 3 free-agents - I'd pick them as the favorite for that spot.

    I think they're going to be contenders, a good defense can get a team a long way. Like 2 years ago.

    But the issue is, that defense lost a lot of it's luster last year. And, it may be losing at least one key player.

    Combine that with losing a star on offense and so far doing nothing to upgrade a position of dire need (QB) and the durability/toughness issues at RB - yeah - the Bears are going to contend - but I don't think it will be what Bear fans would like to be contending for.

    It's gotta suck to be a Bears fan. One quarterback away from being a serious contender, and they don't seem to know it.

    Re: Bears sign Orton to 1 year extension

    This extension tells me that the Bears are buying one more year of out these quarterbacks. I think they will make a move to draft a quarterback that they think can be their future (Matt Ryan?) and give him a year to learn and sit.

    As a Packers fan, let's hope they continue the nonsense.
